Packaging for Professionals (P4P) based in Fleurus, just outside of Brussels was established in 2015. The Fujifilm Jet Press 720S was the first technology investment Mohamed Toual, company co-founder and CEO, made when he founded P4P. The company’s investment in this new platform represents a European first, “Traditional printing in the packaging sector has always been problematic in two important areas. Prototypes were always inferior to the finished product – offering at best an indication of what the customer could expect – and there was also, inevitably, a time lag for the production run due to the amount of manual labour involved in the production process. The Jet Press 720S – which I believe is now the benchmark platform in this sector – has changed all this. Its quality, flexibility and efficiency means that these challenges have been over–come,” says Toual.
The Jet Press 720S features new generation Samba printheads with each B2 width print bar containing 17 individually replaceable modular printheads, each with 2,048 nozzles, ensuring the press can achieve native resolutions of 1,200 x 1,200 dpi. The print bar also takes advantage of the VersaDrop technology, allowing the size and shape of each ink drop to be precisely controlled and placed on the paper. This ensures high digital print quality and no on-press tweaks are necessary. The replaceable modular printheads also significantly reduce the necessity for system downtime and minimize breaks in production for press maintenance, with a traditional offset-fed paper feed mechanism providing high registration accuracy and reliable operation.
